And they wonder why the American people don’t trust mainstream media!
CNN Anchor Jim Acosta called Daily Caller co-founder Tucker Carlson a “human manure spreader” and said Republican leaders are like the “American Taliban” in a Saturday evening segment.
Acosta criticized members of the Republican Party and Carlson for their stances on welcoming Afghan refugees into the U.S. following the Taliban’s takeover. The show showed a segment of a Tuesday episode of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” showing Carlson warning Americans of the consequences of allowing Afghan refugees into the country.

At least 100 Afghan refugees have been flagged for terrorist ties as of Sept. 3.
President Joe Biden said at least 5,000-65,000 Afghan refugees need to be evacuated. The Pentagon’s percentage of .5% of refugees with questionable connections means that 250-325 of the evacuees could potentially be flagged.
Acosta blamed conservatives for the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the Supreme Court’s refusal to block Texas’ pro-life legislation that bans abortion at six weeks of gestation and allows for people to sue medical providers for performing an abortion. Acosta referred to the legislation as a “Handmaid’s Tale vibe.”
“If you’re getting a Handmaid’s Tale vibe from all of this, you’re not alone,” he said.
“…what we’re seeing is sort of like an American Taliban. It is starting to look like a combination of theocracy and thugocracy. The leaders of this ‘Magaban’ movement, people like Marjorie Taylor Greene, Madison Cawthorn, and Tucker Carlson, they’re not counting on an intelligence failure or a lack of planning on your part, they’re counting on a lack of courage to stand up for your rights in this country.”
What the hell is he talking about?
Tucker Carlson along with Reps. Greene and Cawthorn are raising the concerns that many of their viewers and constituents have about the rising levels of mass immigration to the United States. This is not a racial issue, it’s economic.
Reports gather that a majority of refugees – and illegal immigrants from Central America – eventually utilize the welfare system, putting a major strain on taxpayer resources. The average Afghan refugee will cost the U.S. taxpayer $113,562, according to recent estimations.
But Acosta continued, instilling fear and hate in his dwindling amount of nightly viewers.
“The anti-immigration, anti-democratic, anti-women’s rights forces have all sought these kinds of changes for years. Even decades in this country. Their operation to change America forever is well underway. It’s just changing in a way that they don’t want you to see,” he said.
Author Frank Schaeffer used the phrase “American Taliban” to compare Texas’ law, (S.B. 8), to the Taliban on MSNBC’s “Reid Out” Wednesday. BotSentinel Founder Christopher Bouzy referred to those that passed the law as “The North American Taliban” via Twitter.
On the Left, the madness never stops.
